    Has this been linked already? Incredibly sympathic trailer, might make this the first kickstarter project I loosen my wallet for.

    350% funded. They're really blasting through the stretch goals. My only problem in general is how base funding is just there to convince people still on the fence this is, in fact, actually getting made and you need the stretch goals to realize game proper. Locking mini-games like cooking and fishing simply confirms that in this particular case.

    Eh so some of the Stretch Goals are just additional party members/companion it seems, and they are kinda expensive.

    I mean Suikoden companion isn't really known for their depth (they got what, 5 profile for detectives + couple of dialogue changes throughout the game, usually).

    Maybe they are looking to have more depth this time around but the companion Stretch isn't really that exciting as we don't know what the initial 100 looks like to begin with (except the 6 posted in the KS) and we don't know what the new one gonna looks like either.

    I much prefer low ambition stretch goals like this. Stretch goal creep, with extremely expensive systems that need to be superimposed onto a game structure that cant support them are a project killer. And after Project Phoenix and that FFT scam every small risk factor is one too many.

    Looks like they put a lot of though into this campaign, working with Western PR company specialized in Kickstarter.

    Some interesting bits from FAQ:

    Also more than a third of the bakcers are new to KS too. This somewhat aligns with Bloodstained KS.

    Also backers by countries, notable for Singapore and Indonesia:

    Ye, JRPG is big in SEA.

    Like we never really have the 90s CRPG gaming culture or something like that. Most kids at that time started with SNES and PSX, making console games and JRPG in general to be the genre for people who enjoy RPGs.

    2.3 mil in 3 days AND Kickstater has given them another day to compensate for the lost time due to the platform crashing.

    Or they have to settle for something more realistic, like Bloodstained roguelike mode turning into a randomizer.

    That was like 4 years back at his work place? and hadn't done any work in nearly a decade. He looks a bit in better shape now. Hopefully he'll live long enough to work on a bunch of games now that it seems his studio will be financially stable.

    And unlike most old JRPG series (BoF, DQ, FF) there is no big leap in gameplay between 1 and 2. They are mechanically similar so don't be afraid that you are going to play "Suikoden just in name" while playing some old dungeon crawler 1st person JRPG or something.

    Holy shit this game is awesome. Just put an hour in and the soundtrack is already amazing, already met a handful of charming characters. This is gonna be a sweet adventure.

    :takemymoney:


    edit: didn't see the bro's post above. I just picked this one since I figured it's "the" one to try if one were to try just one. If this keeps up, which I'm sure it will, I'll go back to 1. Gotta enjoy/experience this adventure first though

    I reallllllllllllllly shouldn't be giving money to a Kickstarter JRPG without a defined gameplay loop after playing through the bland shit gameplay loop of Octopath Traveler.


    But it's Suikoden.

    Apparently it has passed Shenmue 3 Kickstarter in number of backers by the Japanese. While the funding has slowed down after the first 3 days, it's still doing about 50K per day, not bad. Didn't think it would reach 2.5 let alone 2.7 before the final rush, which is the final 3 days. This might end at around 3.5 Million.

    Was there a single nostalgia KS project by old devs that didn't disappoint? Why are you guys sure this one will be any different?
